Lip Treatments - NUXE - Reve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm with Honey

I'm a lip balm freak and this gets top marks from me so that's saying a lot. First up this lip balm works. It's thick and adheres well to the lips long term thus rendering them soft and moisturised unlike other lip balms which feel great at first and then slide off too soon. This is thick but doesn't ever feel gloopy or waxy and leaves a nice matte effect and great base for …Read more

Ok so before writing my review I went ahead and read what other people thought of this product to see if they were as pleased as I am and I can't tell you how shocked I am to read about the reports of hair loss etc. To me that is very serious yet perplexing at the same time as my experience is actually the opposite...

To be honest, I have been scared of using anything with …

I can't believe I've only just discovered this foundation. I bought the shade 200 which is probably the best match for my NC30 light-medium olive skintone. This really DOES last as long as it says it does but without the cakey heavy feeling you would expect from a product with promises like this.

Be mindful that this is a slightly drier formulation with medium to full …

I originally purchased a bottle for my husband through a seller on ebay who sold many natural products. My husband has a chronic itchy, sensitive, flaky scalp and we are always on the hunt for good haircare that helps his condition. The first bottle I bought was nothing short of a miracle, I noticed it had a potent herbal smell and a yellowish colour. My husband raved about it, it cleared his …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Happy Days

I have three of these pencils in Hopi, New Lover and Happy Days. This one would have to be my fave of the three. Hopi is a warm orangey bronze, New Lover is supposed to be pink infused with gold but I find it too cool toned for me. I'm MAC NC30 and have light olive skin so the peachy coral tones of Happy Days really suits me.

People have mentioned that they need to keep sharpening …

This is just ok. I know it has been compared to other high end blushes such as NARS Orgasm but this is very very different in my opinion and people need to be aware of that before purchasing even if this is only $3. Where Orgasm is quite pink this is more peach and much more shimmery and doesn't show up nearly as well. Also where NARS blushes are quite pigmented I found this one to be less …Read more

Hhhhmmmm, had VERY high expectations for this but I'm sad to say that this has been a bit of a let down given the good reviews and the claim that it was "ten years in the making". First of all, the coverage is poor, I would say it's more akin to a tinted moisturiser and unfortunately I was unable to "build" any coverage. After applying with care I could still see …Read more

Apr/02/2011

This is seriously one of the best foundations I've ever tried and I have tried a LOT so that's saying something. First of all to address all the bad reviews here I can't stress enough that you MUST use this on well moisturised, hydrated skin. If you try and slap this over just your freshly washed face you are asking for trouble...

I like that this is predominantly water …

Not a fan of this at all! Firstly the colours were a little "off" for me, I just couldn't find a good colour and settled for the closest match which turned out to have a pinkish/peach undertone. Secondly, I just don't appreciate the texture, it's creamy in the pot then just feels kind of waxy and dry on my skin, seems to settle into dry patches and fine lines and gives an …Read more

Very disappointed in this. I just can't get this to show up on my skin at all, it's just far too pale and kind of chalky looking. Absolutely useless blush unless you are snow white.<br>
Up for swap it goes!!
